The latest GBRf Class 66/7 to roll out of the paint shops at Eastleigh Works, a replacement for the previously written off No. 66734, has gained Platinum Jubilee livery. Bob Tiller

GBRailfreight has outshopped its latest EU Class 66 conversion from Eastleigh Works in a stunning new livery.

The locomotive, previously No. PB04 in Europe, has taken the identity of Class 66/7 No. 66734, which was written off in a landslide adjacent to Loch Trieg in 2012, is the 100th member of the class acquired by GBRailfreight.

To mark the Platinum Jubilee of HM The Queen, the engine has been outshopped in purple and silver, with the Platinum Jubilee logo and Union Flag on the bodyside. The engine has been named 'Platinum Jubilee', and although it currently carries vinyl nameplates, these will be replaced by cast versions in time.
